    Not only "NO,"
    But, "HELL NO!"
    Corporations should have absolutely no voice equal to that of a citizen. Corporations ate NOT people. The people who work for them are citizens and can vote.
    Additionally, lobbying (legalized bribery) is reprehensible and should be outlawed.

    Thank you! This is heresy. Corporations already have too much power! pres. Ike said "beware of the military-industrial complex".

    Yes he did, in his farewell address to the nation as president.
    Too bad we didn't listen.

    And I'm fine with executing a company the day we can prove that one went on a mass killing rampage like Adam Lanza or James Holmes.

    @Fishbone345 Its ironic, the trolls on this site are allowed to say anything and their posts arent deleted, nor are they banned, but God forbid if a non-troll defends themself from said trolls.

    @armed_liberal Pharmaceutical companies make big oil look like paupers, and they own BOTH parties. The corruption goes on.

    this knuckle head needs to be investigated! either drug use or under the table pay off has gotten the best of the individual. Corporations already buy politicians and votes with cash, strong arm employees to vote as directed..now someone thinks "IT" should have an open public vote. Someone has been watching to many sci fi movies!

    The people, who are necessaary to file the papers to create a corporation may already vote. A legal entity created to establish a business and limit the legal liability of the principal investors, does not deserve the right to an additional vote. What would stop a rich principal investor from creating a voluminous number of shell corporations merely to pack the ballot box?

    This is an idiotic idea, even for a politician.

    Good point. Imagine: the wealthy CEOs and other corporate officers create hundreds of shell corporations, each one with a vote, and for each shell, all applicable corporation fees are paid to the state in which they incorporate. I wonder how much of a cut of that action this Republican legislator is lined up for?

    @Denizen_Kate Next to none, the people in Montana are on to this boob. Exit polling showed a vast majority oppose citizens united, which is the very basis of this fallacious logic. In reality I wish political campaigns were limited to 6 weeks and financing was equal, public, and heavily regulated. As it is campaigns linger on for several years, often with the candidates not sitting in the offices they already occupy. The system is most definitely broken. The only glint of hope is that despite the vast sums spent in 2012, we saw something remarkable. At the end of the day, it's a popularity contest, and you have to win the majority of the votes. You can buy ad space, but you cannot buy citizens.

    Corporations can already vote! How? Because they have shareholders who are actual living people - and those people can vote.

    Whoever suggested that corporations be allowed to vote as if they are physically independent people needs to have their head examined.

    if you can sue them as "individuals" they should be allowed to vote, also you allow the leftist/socialist unions to vote and they are the most crooked corporations on the face of the earth!

    Why not, Romney already told us that corporations are people, and the Supreme court gave them civil rights, so why not the vote?

    Either that, or congress should make a clear and unambiguous against all of that.
